Field Update: These are still "cling" peaches. We will update when tehy are cling- free!- July 8
It's SUMMER! We've very excited to deliver five pounds of peaches grown by Spring Valley Farm + Orchard. Approximately 15 peaches!
Your peaches will be delivered in a box with a piece of foam to help ensure the peaches in the best shape possible!
Peach season usually runs from late June to mid-September. Earlier season peaches are cling varieties. Later season varieties are cling-free, which means the pit comes out cleanly from the peach! Cling-free peaches are the ones to use for canning + preserving!
Store: peaches will likely not be ripe upon receipt. Store them spaced apart on your counter until they have reached your desired ripeness! For faster ripening, put them in a warmer spot, even outside air temperature, but out of direct sunlight! Warmer temperature = faster ripening!
Once the peaches are ripe, store in the fridge and use within a few days. Wash JUST before eating!
Spring Valley has been at farmers markets with us since day 1 of starting our business - we've known Eli Cook + his dedicated crew for almost a decade now! Located just outside of Romeny, West Virginia, they're just over 2 hours from Washington DC. The Cook family is committed to growing, picking and selling high quality, fresh fruits + vegetables. Spring Valley has grown their business at both farmers markets in the DC-area and at their farm stands in Virginia and West Virginia.
